Woman to Woman... Wisdom and Life

"I watched babies open their eyes upon a new world. I found cause for laughter and gratitude. I was loved.

And now you come to me—women with hands and feet as soft as a queen's, with
more cooking pots than you need, so safe in childbed and so free with your
tongues. You come hungry for the story that was lost. You crave words to fill the
great silence that swallowed me, and my mothers, and my grandmothers before
them.

I wish I had more to tell of my grandmothers. It is terrible how much has been
forgotten, which is why, I suppose, remembering seems a holy thing.
I am so grateful that you have come. I will pour out everything inside me so you
may leave this table satisfied and fortified. Blessings on your eyes. Blessings on
your children. Blessings on the ground beneath you. My heart is a ladle of sweet
water, brimming over."
